Notes

Father, at Thy footstool see. C. Wesley. [For Unity.] In his Hymns & Sacred Poems, 1749, vol. ii., this is No. 3 of 55 hymns "For Christian Friends," in 6 stanzas of 4 lines. (Poetical Works, 1868-1872, vol. v. p. 408). When given in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 500, stanzas v., vi. were omitted. This is repeated in the revised edition, 1875, and several collections in Great Britain and America. The hymn in Dr. Martineau's Hymns of 1840, and of 1873, beginning with the same first line, is a cento, a few lines of which are from this hymn, but the rest we have been unable to trace.
